ST. LOUIS — St. Louis Blues fans took to the streets of downtown St. Louis, Thursday night, in celebration of their team progressing to the next round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.
It came after the Blues beat the Minnesota Wild 5-1 in Game 6 of the first round.
Blues fan Joshua Morales said, “The way they handled it was great. These last two wins – they look like they’re getting in shape and look prepared for the next round.”
“They looked good,” added Brandon Lyons. “Started out a little slow, but they came out and did what they had to do and got it going.”
Blues fans were beside themselves as they spilled out of the Enterprise Center after the game. 5 On Your Side cameras were there to see fans decked out in their Blues attire, celebrating the victory on the streets of downtown St. Louis.
